Tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of your console!

It's close to a year since the PlayStation 4 was released in the West, and those 11 or so months have gone about as well as Sony could have hoped. With regards to competition with Microsoft, the PlayStation 4 has beat out the Xbox One commercially, and Sony's console has topped out the global console sales list this year. The PlayStation 4 has been marketed less as an all-in-one entertainment system than the Xbox One, but that's not to say Sony's console can't hold its own outside of gaming. From integrated live streaming to the cloud features of PlayStation. Now, the PlayStation 4 has plenty to offer. Along with the usual advertised stuff, the PlayStation 4 is also filled with a number of handy features that aren't immediately obvious. Just like the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 before it, Sony seem to have taken pride in having their latest console crammed with secrets. This list takes a look at 12 things you probably didn't know you could do with your PlayStation 4. From hidden away options to neat tips that will greatly improve your user experience, each of these entries will help you get the most out of your console.

What some PlayStation 4 owners might not know, is that they can make their console equally as spooky as the Kinect-powered Xbox One. As you've probably guessed, you'll first need a PlayStation 4 camera. Once you've got it attached to your console, go into your Settings, then Login Settings. After that, navigate down to Face Recognition and enable it. With it enabled, you'll be able to automatically log into your console using facial recognition alone!
